I’m really struggling with Maths. After failing my level 2 Functional maths exam. I also didn’t pass maths in school at A levels (I was educated in South Africa so a bit different there) really stressed as I’m applying to uni this week for Occupational Therapy and I have no idea what to do.

Any advice would be appreciated

Do not worry my friend, it took me 6 years to pass my mathematics GCSE in England (2015-2020). It is my ultimate weakness. My only advice is that you, if you're taking maths in the UK now, is to get the low hanging fruit being the first 10-15 maths questions on a paper. They are the so called 'easiest' and therefore if you get these you've pretty much got 35-40% of your grade sorted and can pick up another 20-30% of the marks you need to by answering some of the harder questions on the paper (depending on which exam board you do). Best chance would be that they might accept you without maths, but if they do, then there is not much you can do to remedy the situation. Best of luck to you.
